Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Service

VACO FOIA Offices, Requester Service Centers & Public Liaisons

Effective on September 19, 2011, the Department of Veterans Affairs will accept FOIA requests electronically.  Most VA Central Office (VACO) Offices listed below are in the process of establishing an electronic mailbox.   In the meantime, the FOIA Service will accept electronic FOIA requests for any VACO FOIA Office that does not yet have a mailbox in place, and will forward your request to the appropriate office for processing.

To find out if the office you want has an electronic mailbox, check the list below before you submit a new request to: vacofoiaservice@va.gov

If you want records which are maintained outside of VACO, visit the following site and select the location you want: http://www.foia.va.gov/FOIA_Contacts.asp
